Highlights / General details
Chester was founded as a “castrum” or Roman fort in the year 79 AD by the Roman Legio II Adiutrix during the reign of the Emperor Vespasian. Chester's four main roads, Eastgate, Northgate, Watergate and Bridge, follow routes laid out at this time – almost 2,000 years ago. No city in Britain is richer in terms of archaeological and architectural treasures than Chester with its Walled City on the River Dee. The City Sightseeing Chester Open Top Bus Tour will introduce you to the City Walls, the Cathedral, Roman Amphitheatre and all the things to do in the city. Discover how Chester has survived and prospered through the ebb and flow of history as you are transported around the city.
